Fallen Paladin, Traitor Champion OOC
« on: April 18, 2010, 05:41:33 PM »
In a previous incarnation of the Conclave, I RPed as Cpt Tigurio Falzone during what I believe was called the Silver Heresy. In the Silver Heresy series, many fell to the rebel and outlaw Inquisitor Zoran Silver (iirc). Tigurio Falzone lost almost all of his men to the forces of Chaos. In a blood rage near the end of the battle, Tigurio condemned the Imperium for being weak, called upon whatever dark and vile force was killing his men to empower him, that he might avenge the death of his brothers, and bring an end to that battle.

It worked. Kinda. Tigurio was temporarily blessed by Chaos. Excessively blessed. And the Inquisitors around him saw his evil for what it was. (Many had come to fight Silver). Though he escaped, Tigurio is now a traitor to the Imperium. He sees the Imperium as the weakling corpse that caused his men to die needlessly, when all should worship chaos...

Long and short. Tigurio Falzone, Chaos champion of the Black Templars (hehe) needs to die. Well, that is, if any Inquisitors/assassins are up to the task.

I'll try to coordinate the RP, and will use this thread to list (by edit) who is signed on in what role. We'll figure out location, timing in relation to the Silver Heresy and all that after I know we have enough people to pursue Falzone to make an interesting story (min 3, pref 1 or 2 from previous storyline).

EDIT: Replaced Khorne w/ generalized Chaos, as IIRC, Tigurio himself went Tzeentch, but some of his followers went Khorne/Slaanesh... only god left out = Nurgle...

Well, for reference, SH2 ended on the 006/007.M42 turnover, and SH3 largely took place in 012. It's now 010.

Would a Hyrcanian character be at all relevant or should I keep my contributions Imperial? Or maybe I can offer one of my Khorne characters, all depends on what you want from me...

Orin Lomak was an Inquisitor who fought all through the Silver Heresy and dissapeared shortly afterwards. As I recall there was a post SH story that I involved him in but I had to pull out of that half way through and Lomak, wounded at the time, was left to wander the galaxy.

I'll have to see what IC and OOC information I still have on him and maybe he could be recalled for this hunt.

Hmm... Koval: Thanks for the dates. Didn't even know before. I don't remember what the Hyrcanians are, but I vaguely remember having the feeling they were a semi-independent military similar to the Imperial Guard... but strictly to their own empire/zone... Not unlike the planetary defence forces of McCragge?

As for whether to bring one of them in, or an Imperial or a Khorne devotee/servant/champion... Ask yourself this. Which would you most like to do? If Hyrcanian, I'd assume the Hyrcanian would have something at stake in the matter. If your contribution is an Imperial Guard, Inquisition or Space Marine force, how did they become aware of the situation? If Khornate, is he seeking to help Tigurio, or challenge/kill?

Kallidor. I remember Orin Lomak in name, but not necessarily in detail. Care to extrapolate a little? Wandering the Galaxy can be hazardous to your health. Perhaps he's become a radical who uses daemons to divine where the next Chaos incursion will be, or perhaps he's the puritanical hardliner who smites anyone who doesn't open fire on the first demon they see within the second they see it?

I'm not sure if I pulled him out of 'that RP', I forget the name, because I took a brake from the 'Clave or what but he wasn't dead so I guess he's been up to soemthing.

His story was that he was from the 34th/5th Millennium but due to some wierd warp accident lost six thousand years. Getting such a stark contrast between the Imperium then and the Imperium of M.41 he didn't much like what he saw.

He was a sniper, stealthy, fight from the shadows type Inquisitor, in fact I think he was a psyker and used his powers to mask his presence to others. As I recall he started off as a double agent working for Silver but leaking information to the anti-faith and at one point was able to conceal himself from a Genestealer in a very narrow corridor. During the SH he had a personal vendetta against Silver's Magos who torutred him and ripped his arms (lukily they were bionic anyway) and left him for dead. He executed him during SH2 but that was only the beginning.

In the last RP he was tagging along again in his capacity as survivor of the SH, an adept linguist who was translating ancient/alien runes or some such.

Other than those hazy ideas I don't think he ever got fleshed out in that much detail, since his past was ancient history he was little more than a ghost, an Inquisitor still but really just going through the motions.

Sniper you say? KHORNE HATE SNIPER! RAAAGH! *rip, rend, tear, gobble, gnash, spit, wipe face* Now... where were we?

Actually, sniper could be decent. I'm hoping to avoid some of the uber-epic-demigodding that was done before though, like certain people jumping off walls, running down their sides and assaulting the forces below without a rappelling rope, jet pack or anti-grav device... just as an example. I seem to recall during the siege I took part in, far too many people took the opportunity to survive a 40-50 foot jump, which would kill any Inquisitor not using aforementioned precautions, and any space marine who tried it might break a leg. In half.

So, evading detection of a genestealer is one thing, but I seem to recall Tigurio himself was not Khorne, and had some psychic power by the end of the thread. It might be a bit too much for him to try and "hide" from anyone with warp sight. Then again, I'm still searching to see if I have a thumb drive with the text saved lying around to verify that thought. Otherwise, I'll be setting up exactly what powers Tigurio has OOC before implementing them IC...

Having undergone various background revisions since then, they're a bit like Ultramar, yes, but totally autonomous and rather opposed to the Imperium itself -- as you might appreciate, this doesn't exactly win them very many friends. They're a threat, but being as they're still working on expansion outside of their own system (beside scattered outposts), they're not an especially serious one.

All valid questions, and after assessing the motives and dispositions of my various characters (of which I presently have 48; of these, twenty-two could feature in their own stories or be considered "major", with a further five of these presently deceased), I'll offer you Agares.

When I get back from work tonight I'll enlighten you further, but at present he's a Bloodletter, albeit one with his own intelligence, and well on the way to achieving relative autonomy and status as a Herald of Khorne. He's presently inhabiting an Inquisitor's body after a botched experiment by another Inquisitor, and is one of a few attempts to do Intelligent Khorne (that's to say, a Khornate character that thinks beyond how much blood will be spilled in the next eight seconds)

Whether he's a help or a hindrance, though, probably depends on Falzone himself.

Yes  :-[ At least Caralinus had the excuse that whenever he performed such inhuman feats he was daemonically possessed at the time.

In such an event I imagine that the two powers would cancel each other a little meaning that any cat and mouse going on would be the same between these two as it would between any ordinary humans. It'd be interesting to play out anyway.

NAME: Agares
RANK / AFFILIATION: Bloodletter / Khorne

AGE / GENDER / APPEARANCE: Old as the hills / Male preference / Wears the body of Dakarai Khama, a towering black-skinned Inquisitor. Prefers to maintain the resemblance of Khama, though occasional mutations do develop and it takes rather a lot of effort on Agares' part to make them regress. Plays the Inquisitor stereotype to the hilt and dresses in long, flowing robes just as often as full battle armour. Khama's blood-red eyes, a lesser mutation that Agares has not cared to correct, occasionally cause Agares to be mistaken for a Salamander neophyte. Should Agares ever be caught without so much as a vest covering his upper body, one might be able to make out a near-impossible map of scars covering Agares' back, as well as smaller scars on his arms and chest; all self-inflicted, Agares was driven to rather extreme measures to remove all of Khama's devotional tattoos, with varying degrees of success.

PERSONALITY AND BELIEFS: Although ultimately snarky and cruel with words, Agares mostly follows the directives of Khorne and has no real beliefs or, indeed, will of his own in spite of what passes for intelligence among the rank and file.

ABILITIES / STRENGTHS / WEAKNESSES: Agares is a Bloodletter of Khorne and is prone to extremely violent fits of rage, usually ending long after the intended victims and any witnesses are dead. However, Agares is capable of keeping his rages in check until the most crucial moment, not seeking to blow his cover prematurely. Like many of Khorne's higher-ranking servants, Agares is also possessed of a fantastic military mind, as Khorne respects strategy and other, lesser martial disciplines. Agares has not yet been blessed with the capacity to make tactical decisions while shedding blood with all the fury of Khorne himself, and occasionally pauses to check his rage and re-assess his present situation; such moments are typically brief, as even Agares recognises that to pause on the battlefield is to present yourself as a target, and Agares' preferred tactic is to pause, even for a microsecond, after every single blow to minimise his own vulnerability while maintaining a full appraisal of his present state.

WEAPONS AND EQUIPMENT: Anything and everything, from conventional swords and axes to heavily improvised weaponry such as candelabra, bits of pipe, and even severed limbs. Needless to say, Agares will always carry a dizzying array of weapons about his person, from concealed blades hidden in gown sleeves, to more overt zweihander swords carried on his back. Agares' weapon of preference is the chain-axe, as suited to hacking heads from shoulders as it is making a bloody mess of absolutely anything it touches.

SERVANTS: None

HISTORY: Inquisitor Dakarai Khama once had a promising student named Aw'cer Diori. Shortly after Diori's ordination and invitation to join the Ordo Malleus, the junior Inquisitor was struck violently on the head and was forced to spend several weeks recuperating. He found himself restricted to work of a more clerical nature . It was not long before Diori came across a book of forgotten lore and spent his days poring over it, studying every single word and absorbing its meaning.

Khama himself was sent by the lords of the Ordo Malleus to investigate his apprentice's disappearance. Diori had gotten wind of Khama's arrival and found him first, ambushing his ship as it fell out of the Warp around the Indeli system; in the ensuing clash, however, Diori's ship -- a Sword-class escort frigate -- suffered heavy structural damage from Khama's vessel, barely larger itself, and was boarded by Khama. Falling foul of Diori's bodyguards, Khama was captured and bound in chains in the ship's brig while Diori's prepared defenders ambushed the boarders and fought off the assault. Leaderless, Khama's ship was forced to flee and left Diori's ship a presumed hulk in space.

Diori's motives in summoning a daemon by way of blood sacrifice were unclear. Diori maintained it was simply to tie in his research with the chance to be rid of an enemy, though the testimony of a heretic tends to be at best unreliable and at worst outright fabrication. Nonetheless, the pious Khama passed on and his death allowed a Bloodletter to enter the material realm; unfortunately for the Bloodletter, the summoning was the inexperienced work of one biting off more than he could chew, and in its rage it lashed out at Diori; sensing its time was limited, the Bloodletter homed in on the nearest body, and Khama, dead but not braindead and still usable, was closer than the sprawling Diori. Upon possessing its new body, the Bloodletter managed to break its restraints and pounced on Diori with ease, but stayed its hand at the very last moment as it realised precisely where it was: on a crippled ship in the middle of nowhere. Deducing that it was trapped, and reasoning that a simple act of patience now might yield more blood for the Blood God in the long term, the Bloodletter let Diori live.

Came the sudden disaster at Fahrech and the investigation by several Inquisitors into the horror, Agares was less considerate and blew Diori's ship up after the Inquisitor fled, though as word of Khama's death was never circulated among the Ordo Malleus, it was a simple matter for Agares to pose as Khama himself after his escape; naturally, though, the merchant freighter that picked up the apparent Khama, seeking a reward from the Inquisition, was turned into a space-borne slaughterhouse within hours. It is not known how Agares returned to the Eye of Terror thereafter.

Kallidor. I kinda like the idea you present with having Orin Lomak track Marshal Tigurio Falzone.

Your mention of his ability to psychically mask his presence makes me think of the movie  "The Shadow"... The bit in the movie where the Shadow can implant forgetfulness or suggestion through hypnotic psychic projection... Or where the villain has the same power, but uses it to mask a sky scraper... Anyways. Kinda made me think of how =][= Lomak might not actually go invisible, but more... suggest to the casual (or scrutinising) observer that he is not present...

Am I off on that, or was that your interpretation of his power too?

Also, do auspex scanners detect him?

Koval. Agares sounds interessant. Mui interessant. (sp?)
Old as the hills on which world?

Okay, so supposing you go with Agares. If he's posing as an Inquisitor, perhaps he will avoid direct contact with Tigurio, but will instead pull strings to orchestrate more bloodshed at Tigurio's hand. IIRC, the Emperor's Champion was posessed of Slaaneshi gifts, the Chaplain succumbed to Khorne (or died. Can't remember) and Tigurio grew a thrid eye... along with all the balefire Tzeentch is commonly associated with.

So, Tigurio would not be travelling alone, but his band of brothers is significantly smaller than it was before...

Also, I should like to point out that such a travesty would not go unnoticed by the Black Templars or their progenitor chapter. The Imperial Fists. Unless someone else has a character/squad to lend to that end of the story, I have been working on a grand nephew of Tigurio Falzone for some time. Draconis Argentus Falzone. The family has a proud heritage of having their young lads join the Space Marines. Tigurio's brother did not make it, but sired a large family, as was the tradition. From that family, many of the men have been recruited down the generations to multiple chapters. Draconis Argentus was blessed with selection by the Imperial Fists.

Long short of that. Draconis, upon hearing of his ill fated grand uncle Tigurio, would no doubt set out to rectify his Uncle's heresy. Though I doubt he'd have much more than a tactical squad, if he gets anything... until he can prove a) Tigurio lives. b) Tigurio is a heretical servant to the ruinous powers.

Ahh, the sun is shining...

I think that about sums him up actually. I think the game was called Second Sight but I'm not sure, anyway as your progressed through the game your character developed more and more psychic powers and one was astral projection where your character could leave his body and wandered around to snoop for guards and what not; that was my original inspiration but I don't think I went as far as having Lomak project merely make others unaware of his presence.

I don't think it would fit that he could mask his signs completely to an auspex and things of that nature but he might be able to alter the perceptions of the user so that even when the auspex detects life signs they just see a blank screen et cetera.

Judging by the assassin in Duty Calls, I'm going to step in and say no unless the auspex in question is a psi-tracker. To wit:
Quote from: Amberley Vail's footnote
...the human brain operates on minute electrical signals and impulses, so it's perfectly possible that his masking field would also affect anything electronic in the vicinity.
Make of that what you will.

Being a Bloodletter Agares doesn't have a precise age.

ah ah ah ah, he's simply wearing an Inquisitor, he doesn't always pose as one. He's not a Prince so he will slip up very frequently, but being the intelligent sort, a greater ratio of blood:time is very high on his agenda so he is inclined to do his best.

Quote

Indeed, and I'm still trying to work out where that came from since Pennatus is Undivided bordering on Tzeentch...
Quote

Pennatus catapulted him through a warp portal into the Kraken system's sun. He's pretty dead.

He might have more if another Inquisitor comes along and foregoes Chamber Militant support to contact the Black Templars / Imperial Fists directly.

Lomak has the same powers as Corax Primarch of the Raven Guard, he had the ability to walk unseen in the way that if he concentrated people's minds refused to register his presence even going as far as questioning the readings on auspex  or through thermal lenses though auto sensors were still able to detect him not possessing a mind per say


this looks interesting and thusly I present

NAME: Nero

RANK / AFFILIATION: Brother Captain / Unknown

AGE / GENDER / APPEARANCE: Unknown Age / Male / Nero is a space marine and is possessed of their genetically enhanced stature his skin is alabaster white his eyes darkened orbs of cold silver, at some point in time he has shaved his head and had a pair of wings tattooed over his skull, his armour is marble white with green edging his chapter and squad markings removed.

ABILITIES / STRENGTHS / WEAKNESSES: As a space marine Nero is endowed with all their strengths and abilities he is able to survive extended periods without food or water and has little need for sleep, if anything thing his weakness is his temper, too often he allows himself to become lost in rages that overspill into fits of violence and destruction.

WEAPONS AND EQUIPMENT: Nero is proficient with all weapons though his favoured are a long hafted power axe and bolt pistol he has been known to wield a heavy bolter in battle and often carries a multitude of  additional weapons with him.

SERVANTS: Nero is head of a warband of unknown origins, he leads a collective of Space Marines from different chapters as well as commanding a force of humans, these humans call themselves the Legio Divinicus. They are a mix of devout fanatics and professional soldiers each one carrying a copy of the Lectio Divinicus, one of him most noted servants is simply called The Mourning Call a dreadnought of frightening reputation for the deeds of utter slaughter it has visited upon Nero's enemies. 

HISTORY: The name Nero has been passed around the Eye for millennia he is an almost mythical being a hunter of the fallen where Nero walks traitors die, though many campaigns have been launched by dozens of worshippers of the dark gods to end him he has always returned stronger than before, and wrought havoc and death. It is whispered that Nero follows guidance from a dark oracle supplied by one of the dark god and that his slaughters serve some unknown scheme, others speculate that he is in fact a rogue Alpha Legionary following his own agenda still more say he is a World Eater waging war for war's sake.


--

Needless to say he is a hunter of the fallen and the lost, the word of Falzone's coming to him could spell some dark portent that he intends to stop for his own agenda or perhaps he serves the Emperor still and Falzone's fall simply needs to be put to an end.

Necris, welcome! This gets better. First Koval and Kallidor. Now you. We seem to have an abundance of talent that all want Tigurio Falzone dead.  ;D

So, perhaps now would be the time to post a summary of Tigurio and what he's been up to since the end of the Silver Heresy.

NAME: Tigurio Falzone

RANK/AFFILIATION: Fallen Marshal / None

AGE/GENDER/APPEARANCE: 2-3 Centuries / Male / 8'5" (2.5 Meters roughly). While originally, Tigurio bore a light complexion with gray/blue eyes and short cropped black hair, his skin has since discolored grayish red, his eyes have sunken and darkened to brown, and his hair is now a long, mahogany mane. His forehead (which sported centurial service studs) now sports two horns made of a red crystalline matter. His third eye is only visible when he taps into the Warp.

Tigurio did not hesitate in modifying his armor. The Black Templar chapter iconography has not been removed hower, instead, it has been embellished to the point of caracature. Etchings of parodied slogans (Fornicatus Te instead of Damnatus Te on his bolt pistol, for example) decorate his armor and weapons. Hexagrammic and Pentagrammic inocation and summoning symbols decorate his body where once there were wards.

The Cross of Malta characteristic of the Black Templars chapter, is replaced by four arrows pointing outward, instead of in, each of these arrows just barely touching the two next to it, and all four are intersected by a circle which itself adds an additional four arrows on the outside of the circle. The overall appearance lends itself to insult the Black Templars while honoring the Ruinous Powers. To add to this blasphemy, Tigurio's shoulder pads bear skulls, in mockery of the Iron Skull given as an honor to many space marines. These two skulls bear more resemblance to snarling, shrieking daemons, and burn constantly, even when the armor is in storage. The flames themselves are not physical fire, and so do not set fire to the world around them. They are balefire. Hellfire from the Warp, seeping through the mobile micro portals in the armor. Each skull projects an aura of energy which, when triggered, causes the warp fire to shoot from the nearer shoulder pad to intercept an incoming attack or shot. The blast of energy directs itself away from Tigurio, and acts much like a Rosarius in these matters.

ABILITIES/STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES: As mentioned above, Tigurio's armor grants a measure of invulnerability by channelling warp energies into this realm. The added effect is that the warp fires themselves have an unnerving effect, and all but the most stalwart opponents will likely flee rather than face him. Even a space marine may find it necessary to tactically withdraw when up close and personal with him. Tzeentch has gifted Tigurio with sorcery, and after abandoning the Imperium with disgust, he spent many years ransacking Imperial worlds near the Eye of Terror. His psychic powers are limited, as he is only beginning to grasp them. However, Tigurio does bear the blessings of Tzeentch. This grants him a measure of power above an unblessed psyker, and for the time being a measure of protection against the enemies of the Great Schemer. If any, Tigurio's weakness might be that he turned from the Emperor in the first place. The Imperium had been a guiding light for him, and with it, he had found purpose. Now, Tigurio finds less and less purpose with each passing year, and takes out his suicidal rage on those he once protected.

Weapons and Equipment. Tigurio bore a blade before his fall which he still bears. It is now an imbued and evil thing, bearing the souls of those slain by Tigurio and things far worse still. Tigurio still retains his abilities to weild almost any Imperial weapon with skill and finesse. However, in his growing madness, when his fury overtakes him, he will forgo weapons and lash out with his mind, channeling his power through his sword.

SERVANTS: Tigurio keeps a close retinue of Black Templars who decided to follow in their Marshal's path. Each worships one of the four Chaos Gods, and a few have been overtaken by daemons. Tigurio's Chaplain died a fiery death. Khorne has seen fit though, to return the Crozius Arcanum. The fallen Templars re-worked the head into the Icon of Khorne, and flanged it so the Icon could be seen from all directions (Two perpendicular icons joined at their vertical axis). Whenever one of his followers succumbs to a blood rage before battle, he is chained to the Khrozius, and his own blood is the first to trickle down the razor edges, as the marine's palm is cut to smear the weapon.

HISTORY: Long and convoluted.


Hope this isn't too much for Tigurio here. But, if you guys want, I'll thin it (or tone it down)...


ALSO: Draconis Argentus Falzone.

Age: 87
Gender: Male
Appearance: Imperial Fist Space Marine. Fourth Sergeant, Fifth Company. Purity Seal on left shoulder, right knee. Iron Skull on helmet forehead. Imperial Laurel around the Imperial Fist icon on his right shoulder. "Pax Mortem" On a steel banner-styled plaque on his chest, beneath an Imperial Eagle.

Abilities: Space Marineish stuff. Stubborn like the rest of his chapter. Retains whatever he's being tortured for without giving even a speck of info.
Strengths: Space Marine. Young. Energetic. Thinks he can save the Imperium.
Weaknesses: Human. Young. Naive. Thinks he can save the Imperium.

Weapons: Power Sword, Combi-Bolter with Melta. Left-wrist mounted grenade launcher. Explosives of various types. Skilled with all Imperial weaponry, and able to revert when necessary to heavy weapons.
Equipment: Power Armor, inscribed with various protective prayers and wards. Carries a relic skull given to him by his father. The skull served as a Servo Skull in the Scions of Ultramar chapter for three decades before being shot through the cogitator by an Ork. The Scions returned the skull to the family when they reverently pettitioned to be granted guardianship of it. The skull belonged in life to Krast, one of Tigurio's nephews, who served honorably until he died at the age of 158.

Servants: Nine Tactical Marines from the Imperial Fist chapter (A small armory has been issued to Draconis for the purpose of hunting his grand uncle), and twenty or so Imperial Fist chapter serfs. A detachment of PDF equivalent soldiers have also been assigned with their own support staff, and an Imperial Navy ship has been commandeered for the purpose of the Mission (Sword class frigate).

History: Draconis Argentus Falzone has yet to make much of a name for himself, but the fact that his chapter has invested as much resources in his actions itself speaks to the volume of honor and duty he has given to the Chapter. As such, he is not well known, but is a force to be reckoned with. Or at least, he hopes that the outcome of this quest will prove such.

EDIT: Apologies. Forgot how reserved artificer's armor is supposed to be. Edited equipment to fit his rank.
